Alan Freeman - Wants List!
bookmark this page: http://home.btconnect.com/ultimathule/wants.htm
One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!
Excepting those items listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for Audion articles, or our various planned Italian and French books, etc. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. But, please do not offer us anything that is too crackly or of poor quality.
Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email
me: email@example.com with your wants list? We may be able to come to
a swap arrangement! I've generally swapped physical CDR's. But now can cope
easily with swapping online. I usually use Google Drive which is a far
more stable way of uploading and sharing. So, if you want to share an album
and/or swap, my Gmail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively you can
upload via Sendspace or whatever other service you prefer.
Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

Adrian Wagner - DISTANCES BETWEEN US (Atlantic: LP) I have an original LP which is now well-worn & crackly (badly worn sizzle on the Mellotron too), so I need a a near mint LP or recording from a mint or ex+ LP, not from the Music Suite CD which is remixed & ruined! The downloads I've found (inc. the Mutant Sounds one) are all from the remixed CD (note: instant clues are the added electronic percussion and sound effects)!!!
Stomu Yamash'ta - IROHA: TEN/CHI - I have the RVC: 2LP, but would love to get a flac rip of the Japanese CD reissue. I can't believe how obscure the CD's are of this! All web links I've found are dead!

German/Krautrock things we still need to
French 1970/80's acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...
Abramose - ABRAMOSE, LP private 808 (1975) most curious looking, could be good or crap!
Aiguade - CHANSONS DES TEMPS FIGÉS, LP Baccara International BI 001 732 (1976) prog-folk
Atoll - Je T'aime Quand Je Te Vois / Change Ta
Vie, 7" Eurodisc Pop 12806 (1973) non-album
Roger Bellon - ROGER BELLON (RCA Victor ) 1977 -
Balance series jazz-rock with Magma connections
Pascal Chassin - La Nouvelle Européenne / Don Juan 80, 7" Ballon Noir BAL 45004 - curious sounding 1979 single (based on 30 sec sample on 45 Tours) by band that's almost Komintern!
Claude Demet - HORDE, LP Crypto ZAL 6404 (1982) ???? doubt it'll be of interest.
Guidon, Edmond, Clafoutis - Be A Rock N' Roll Star / Stormy Sunday - 7" private 1974
Madhya - Les Chants Du Soir À La Villa Carlotta, Le Kiosque d'Orphée KO/ 81.0909, 1981 obscure synth/neo-cassical?
Alain Markusfeld -
L'Epave / La Croix De Modez (7", Single) Barclay 61.532 L 1972
Metabolisme - Highway Over You / Tempus - 7" FLVM 4517 (1979) non LP single A side - b-side on LP
Sanctus - Jane /
Patrice Sciortino, Le Quatuor De Percussion De Paris - Espaces, LP Arc En Ciel – SM 30-841
Stratageme - Le Sorcier Et Moi / Repent Wal Purgis
Situations Sonores ’76, LP Le Kiosque d’Orphée, KO 760508, 1976 - apparently unusual experimental
Soixante Étages - SOIXANTE ÉTAGES, MC private 1986 - another AYAA related band
Véhicule Léger - Lame De Rasoir / Nez Rouge, 7" FLVM 4540 (1980) sounds like some sort of bizarre Zeuhl based on 30sec sample of Nez Rouge at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/vehiculeleger45t.htm
L'Association Des Musiciens Et Artistes De Touraine Presente "live in Tours 1977" (Disques Barrier 11001) 2LP 1977 - Les Anges Noirs / Avalanche / Deep Feeeling Blues Band / Novelo "Tandava"
Clues and more info welcome. Some of the musicians we
know as members of bands, but not solo.
Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui qui l'dit qui y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de
Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le
45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer
les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et
ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche.
Ena - LP Ena (Fika FK 1002) 1980 Café
Mozart - Outre tombe = Post Punk "cold" Wave --- various artists!
"This recording is a compilation of five very musically different formations. MEGOT and CORRESPONDANCE play an energetic, muscleband rock, close to hard rock. HARALD prefers an insane urban rock, CAFE MOZART plays slightly new wave rock and DAMOCLES proposes a rebellious, declamatory rock which sometimes evokes ANGE or MONA LISA."
Fmr - Identité/Le serpent -
7" MAGIC M0019 (1980) punky pop based on 30 sec sample at
Anita/Je me fais tout petit - pop, it seems
Solitude - 3 singles on Theleme label (got Been Gone So Long on Puissance 13+2, Le Roi Du Monde on YouTube)
Croque Mitaine - LA CHANSON DU FOU - apparently akin to Malicorne, so should be worth investigating! Found a picture, seems we've had it in the past & didn't keep
cassette label from Japan...
If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
